What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

  • Not overly keen on cover bands, unless they are exceptionally good and local boy Mark Simpson emulates his hero Mr Weller very well. All tunes done as authentically as possible and Friday gone, the missus and I popped up to a town near us to see not only the Weller Connection, but Ocean Colour Scheme, (yes scheme), as the name suggests massive fans of Craddock, Fowler etc....This band comes awfully close to the best cover band I have ever seen, absolute top talent, top musicians and if one was led blindfolded into the gig, you would think it was OCS themselves, they didn`t only play the popular later tunes, but played stuff from B-sides Sea-sides and Free-rides and Mosley shoals, highly recommed for any Ocean Colour scene fans.

  • The Flirtations last Friday, the venue was packed to the rafters and great sets by the DJ`s on the night too ;-)

    • Sounds like a good night Al !

    • Sounds like it was a quality night Alan.

    • Absolutely gentlemen, very enjoyable indeed ;-)

    • Top night I bet, Alan. Should be on my way to 'Man from L.I.NZ.' Michael Wink's birthday bash by now, but no- f***ing work tomorrow morning... :-(

    • Yes, I know how you feel Kai, after 37 years of work, I feel that work rules my life, I simply cannot wait to retire, sooner rather than later preferably :-(

  • Last Saturday I saw The Nutty Boys The Truth and Secret Affair  at The Avenue in Chesterfield.

    • 3 in 1 Richard? Can`t be bad ;-)

    • Sounds fantastic. Love SA and the Truth. Must have been a fabulous night.
